Do you struggle with fentanyl abuse?

If so, do not feel alone. Over 23 million American adults have battled with drug use

Drug addiction destroys lives and often ends them. So, put your feelings of guilt and shame aside to seek the help that you need. 

Read on to learn how.

Signs of Fentanyl Addiction

Do I need help?

When it comes to drugs, many people struggle with this question. Often, the loss of control seems evident to everybody except the user themselves.

You may need a Florida rehab center if:

  • You do not use your prescription as directed or use it without a prescription
  • You need fentanyl to function or to feel good
  • You wake up thinking about it
  • The drug consumes your day in thought or practice
  • In order to feel the same effects, you increase the dosage
  • It begins to affect your work and/or social life
  • You experience withdrawal symptoms when you go a while without fentanyl

The fact that you question your drug usage enough to read this suggests that you lost control of your drug use. However, it is possible to learn how to get the help you need.

Reach Out to a Loved One

Confide in somebody you trust. They can help you assess your problem and get the help you need.

You might tell a family member, a close friend, or a member of your community, like a church leader. But, when you go to them, make sure you open yourself up for real suggestions.

Do not confide in them hoping that they will reassure you that you do not have a problem. Display openness and honesty and listen to their concerns and suggestions for you.

Attend a Meeting

Sometimes admitting your problem to somebody close seems too scary. In this case, seek help from strangers at an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meeting.

Here you can find people who overcame addiction that may steer you in the right direction. But, beware that you do not attach to people in the same position as you here, or you both may fall deeper.

Call a Rehab Center

If you know that you suffer from addiction, you probably do not need another person to tell you where to turn. You probably know that you need rehab, even if you do not want to admit it.

Take the initiative to call an addiction treatment facility yourself. This takes courage, so let go of any feelings of weakness or shame.

Give an honest assessment of your situation. Depending on your needs, we may set you up with a medical detox and then move you into inpatient or outpatient treatment.

Take Your Life Back

Fentanyl addiction can sneak up on you. One day you feel in control, and suddenly you cannot figure out how things got so heavy.

Despite how out of control you may feel at the moment, you are still in control of this choice. Take back your life by seeking the treatment that you need from a drug rehab center.
